Cultural Experiences Abroad Await in Rome

April 15, 2004 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
It has been said for many years that all roads lead to Rome. This statement is truer now than ever as Cultural Experiences Abroad (CEA), a study abroad provider, announces its partnership with John Cabot University enabling U.S. and Canadian college students the opportunity to study abroad for credit in Rome, Italy.

CEA, found online at, understands that Rome has long been known as the birthplace of Western Civilization, but in the shadows of the epic Coliseum and encompassing two sides of the historic river Tiber, Rome is also a gateway to the past. The city perfectly combines the best of both worlds, ultra-modern and yet ancient. Exclusive fashion boutiques and eclectic cafés have been built alongside monuments that date back to the 1st century. With all that the city has to offer, CEA enables students to study here and stroll daily beside over 3 million Romans on the same paths that Constantine and Julius Caesar strode every day.

Yet the latest trends and historical backdrop are not the only allures of studying in Rome, for the Eternal City offers a vibrantly rich culture to all. Students can explore the colorful side streets of the centro storico, buy fresh food from the Mercato del Campo de' Fiori for a picnic lunch in the Villa Borghese, or visit the Temple of Vesta in the immaculately preserved Roman Forum. In the evening the piazzas come alive with live music, historic wine bars and of course gelaterie Italian ice cream shops.

As students soak in the culture of the city, they may find one of the best aspects of the CEA program in Rome is the quality of education they receive. Undergraduates are given the opportunity to learn the Italian language, while studying in English courses such as Art History, Business Administration, Classical Studies, Political Science and Theater.

Jennifer Malerich, Program Manager for Italy and English Programs at CEA, points out that "the modern Rome is a crossroads of many different cultures and educational disciplines. The every day living experience in Rome is an education in and of itself. Combine that with the fabulous curriculum offered at JCU and you are in for an experience of a lifetime.' She goes on to mention the numerous amenities students will receive during their program.
